The view from Edmonton - LA Kings Insider

Edmonton Journal

Edmonton Oilers defeat L.A. Kings 3-1

“They had 2-21-3 record against the Kings since 2010-11, before this win. They got saves from Talbot, Eberle’s first multi-point game since Dec. 3, they rolled four lines, won the face-off battle 34-23, the special teams (1-2 on the power play, 2-2 on the penalty-kill).”

“The result was bound to make a statement one way or the other with the Oilers coming off a six-day break after an especially tough grind through the toughest part of their schedule this season. The Kings had played, and lost, the night before in Vancouver.”


Gryba provides unexpected offence in rare win over Kings

“Gryba charged the L.A. goal and found a puck suspended in mid-air at the top of Budaj’s crease. He calmly slotted it home, proving that every guy from Saskatoon has a bit of Gordie Howe in him every once in a while. Even a guy with six goals in 236 NHL games.”


GDB 37.0 wrap up: King for a day

“The Oilers power play was the difference maker tonight. Edmonton was able to give themselves an advantage with their special teams and that included scoring with the man advantage. The home side finished the night at 50% (1/2) with the man advantage.”
